COMMUNICATIONS.
Wkat the Sanitary Commission is doing for
onr Wounded.
Dr. Bellows, President of the Sanitary
Commission, has caused the following letters
to be published in the X. Y. Evening Post.
They explain themselves, and show what the
Sanitary Commission is doing for onr wounded
soldiers on the battle-fields of Maryland
Washington, Sept. 23.
To Dr. Bellows, President—Sir: I enclose
Dr. Agnew’s letter. We tiave sent him, since
the army of Virginia went to meet the inva
ders, that is, within ten days:
26.763 pieces of dry goods, shirts, towels,
bed-ticks, pillows, Ac.; 30 barrels old linen
bandages and lint; 3188 pounds farina; 2620
pounds condensed milk; 5000 pounds beef
stock and corned meats; 3000 bottles wiue and
other cordials, and aeveral tons of lemons and
other fruit, crackers, tea sugar, rubber cloth, tin
cups and hospital conveniences.
We art sending more forward constantly.
. Four thousand seta of hospital clothing will,
by special train from New York, get through
to Frederick tomorrow, if money and energy
can break through the obstructions of this
embarrassed transportation.
Your daily supplies from New York are
reaching us regularly. Respectfully yours,
F. L. Olmstead.
Sanitary Commission, I
Frederick, Md., Sept. 22, 1862. )
My Dear Olmstead:
. I cannot now give you a report of all our
doings since last Wednesday night, but It will
give you joy to know that we have- given aid
and comfort to veer fine thousand wounded.
1 left Washington, as you know, on Wednes
day, at midnight; arriving at the break in the
railroad at Monocacv, Harris and I walked on
to Frederick. Harris remained at Frederick
to hasten up supplies, and 1 pushed on, on
horseback, witii Voliurn to Midddletown, and
quartered with a dominie of the Dutch Re
formed persuasion. 1 was tborouhly wet, and
though compelled to sleep in my wet clothes,
did not suffer. I found Dr. Thompson, Assist
ant Surgeon United States Army, acting Med
ical Director at Middletown,and all the church
es, and public buildings filled with the wound
ed of Sunday's battles.
No additional medical supplies having arriv
ed for Dr. Thompson, I desired him to take
them from our wagons as they came. He bad
previously obtained many essential articles of
food, Ac., from our advanced train. 1 left
him fifty dollars, to be used in purchasing such
things as we had not, to replenish bis deficient
stores. Early on Friday morning I went on
to Kecdysvilfe, and to Gen. McClellan’s head
quartera. About noon (Friday, 19th,) Dun
ning arrived with his wagon, and early on the
evening of Friday, Mitchell and his train of
wagons; on Saturday morning Drs. Brink and
Proverly arrived: and now our stores became
abundant
Dunning and myself went out with stores
as soon as he arrived, and visited burns and
farm houses within a mile and a half from
headquarters, and carried relief to nearly two
thousand wounded. Everywhere we were
asked for chloroform and opiates and instru
ments and bed pans, and everything, in fact,
required for the w ounded, except the coarser
food furnished by the commissary, and the
comforts provided to the extent of Uieir ability
by the inhabitants, who had been previously
nearly stripped by tlie rebels.
The medical supplies sent to meet the emer
gency on Wednesday did not begin to arrive
on the battle field until Saturday afternoon,
and then in small quantity and entirely inad
equately. Many of the same supplies are still
here (at Frederick) awaiting transportation,
while we have had at least four wagon trains
sent to tile front that left Washington subse
quent to Wednesday afternoon, in addition to
two sent before in anticipation of the battle.
You cau estimate at your office the number of
wagons sent forward, including Hays's trains,
which will lie on the battle HeM tills afternoon.
As soou as Brink and Mitchell and Parsons ar
rived on the battle field, 1 sent them over radii
previously ascertained to lie within the circle
of the late battles. They will be aide to state
personally the fields of their o|>erations, ns I
desired them to keep notes. I kept Dunning's
wagort—in fact all the two horse wagons and
ambulances of our train—constantly eoing.nixl
carrying relief to thousands of wounded.
The wounded were mainly clustered aiiout
bams, occupying the barn-yards and floors and
ttablet, having plenty of good straw well brok
en by the power threshing machine. I saw
uii*-.cu uunuicu wuuiiucu men lying upon me
straw about two barns within sight of each
other! Indeed, there U not a barn, or farm
house, or store, or church, or school-house, be
tween Booues borough,Keedysville and Sburp*
burg, and the latter and Smoketown. that Is
not gorged with wounded—rebel and Union.
Even the cow cribs—and in many instances
the cow stables—and in one place the man
gers, were filled. Several thousand lie in th e
open atr upon straw, sod all are receiving the
kind services of the farmers’ families ami the
surgeons.
General McClellan moved his headquarters
from Keedysville on Saturday to Sharpsburg.
Having studied the field and’ the relations of
the clusters of wounded to a central point. I
took, on Saturday, a store at Sharpsburg, hir
ing it of a Union citizen by the name of Cruise.
On Saturday evening I brought up the mule
teams of Proverly to Sharpsburg. On Sunday
morning Dunning, Mitchell, Parsons and my
self unpacked the boxes and filled the shelves
and bins. I took charge of the wagons on Sat
urday night because Dunning,Brink and Mitch
ell were out with relief, to the right and left,
for about three thousand wounded, and Par
sons had gone back, under instructions from
Lieut. Letterman and my approval,to Birketts
ville with reiicr to five hundred and forty
wounded. To finish the store business, I may
say that I have left Parsot.s and Proverly and
a Clerk of Mr. Cruise in charge of the Sharps
burg store, taking tare to provide, out of our
trains, a wagon and a saddle-horse for Dr.
Dunning and tlie same for Dr. Brink. I have
fiven them written instructions to use the sad
le-horses to explore the barn-yards and ham
let* of the country, and the wagons to accom
pany with stores.
Our plan* so far are working splendidly,
thanks to the vigor with which you at Wash
ington have crowded forward supplies. We
have been ahead of every one. and at least two
days ahead of the supplies of the Medical Bu
reau, the latter fact due to its want of inde
pendent transportation. A single item will
s|jow the value of our supplies; we have given
out over thirty pounds of chloroform within
three days after the battle. The medical au
thorities had not one liundreth jiart of what
was needed, and in many places important op
erations were allowed to be neglected, and life
lost. Our chloroform saved at least fifty lives,
and saved several hundred from the pain of
severe operations. Tlie want of chloroform
was tlie most serious deficiency in the regular
medical supplies, and as tlie result, amputa
tion which should have been primary, will now
lie. secondary, or impossible. |The mortality
from secondary amputation is very much great
er than from primary.]
But everything in the way of medical sup
plies was deficient; poor fellows, with lacerat
ed and broken thighs, had to be carried out of
barns into the open fields to answer a call of
nature; men suffering the agony of terrible
wounds were without opiates; tourniquets
were wanting in many instances; stimulants en
tirely wanting; concentrated food also want
ing; in fact everything that wounded men
need, except a place to lie down, and the at
tention of personally devoted surgeons (with
out proper stores, however) was deficient.—
The deficiency was greater than usual,for two
reasons—one, tlie hurry of the army in passing
from a campaign in which everything in the
way of supplies was exhausted or lost; the
other tlie obstruction of the Monocacy, and
the want of independent transportation on thu
part of the Bureau, which would have enabled
it to go by the turnpike. Some blame for tlie
non-arrival of the medical stores lies in the
fact that of all the surgeons—forty or more
sent by the Surgeon General, no one consid
ered himself charged with the function of hur
rying forward anything but himself—the re
sult being that plenty of surgeons got upon
the ground, but almost destitute of necessary
appliance*.
I venture to say that nearly every barn,
and hospital, and cluster of wounded, over
the wide extent of tlie late military operations,
embracing a circle of nearly thirty miles, were
receiving most essential relief from the Com
mission, while the regular medical stores lay
at Monocacy Bridge. I solemnly lay flee hun
dred death* at the door of those icho decline
to furnish facilities to the Medical Mureau
for independent transportation for the late
battles. \\ hen will our rulers learn wisdom
and humanity ? But I must draw this hasty
scrawl to a close. As 1 said. Mitchell I have
ordered back with Henry and Collins, to open
a store at Boones! Kiro.' We now need hospi
tal clothing more than anything else. 1 should
say send two thousand shirt* and drawers to
Frederick, fifteen hundred to Boonesboro’, and
four thousand to Sharpsburg. Send twenty
bed-pan* to Frederic, thirty to Boonesboro,’
and fifty to Shnrpshurg. Bend ten lanterns to
Booties!*iro’. and twentv-flve to Sharpsburg.
As tor other supplies, await telegraphic orders.
We have now, I think, with the wagon* met
last night, enough for several days.
Mr. Platt remains here for the present. His
services have been most valuable. We must
retain him here until tlie press is over. X shall
never cease saying God bless you all for your
efforts in sending forward the relief to tlie
wounded. Yours ever,
C.R. Aonf.w.

TODD’S LIT SOLIS
H AI DYE!
THE market has been flooded for years with differ
ent articles called Hair Dves, which have never
satisfied the expectations of purchasers. The ne
plus ultra has been reached at last iu TODD'S
HAIR DYE, ami the article ha- given entire satis- :
faction to every person who has used it. It contain* I
no injurious ingredient*, and give* the hair a boauti- !
ful rich brown or black color. Directions for usiug
—which are very simple—acorn pa in each bottle.
One superiority of Todd's Lux Sofis Hair Dye over
all others is, you do not have to cleanse the hair or
wash it before or afl>*r usiug the dye, and there is but
one kind to be used, and that cau be put on the same
as oil and water, without any trouble, unlike all oth
er dves that have two or three different kinds to be
. applied every time used. This dye is peculiarly
adapted for ooloring ladies' hair, because vou do not
have to wash out the dve after putting it on. Unlike
aIlotherdyes.it will color long hair, which other
dyes cannot do. Give this new article a trial, as we
know you will use no other after once usiug this.
